"Hope Is Alive"
by Abandon
Lyrics:

You sit there in the waiting room
Anxious for the news
You've been to everyone you could
But they're playing the same tune

In the darkness there's a light
So rest your weary eyes
And lift your head up high

Your hope is alive
Your hope is alive
I see it in your eyes
Your hope is alive

This prison that you've made
You got the feeling that you can't escape
There's a fire that can't be contained
That can burn all your chains away

When the storm is raging there's a peace
A voice that calms the seas
A reason to believe

Your hope is alive
Your hope is alive
I see it in your eyes
Your hope is alive

When everything is crashing down
And your fortress crumbles to the ground
And your strength is failing now
In the darkness there's a light
So rest your weary eyes
And lift your head up high

Your hope is alive
Your hope is alive
I see it in your eyes
Your hope is alive
"All Is Lost"
by Empire 21
Lyrics:

Tell me that all is a twist of fate
Tell me that all is a fairy tale
Is it all coincidence

Tell me just how did we come this far
Tell me just how did we raise the bar so high
Oh why?
Why are we here?

Is there anybody out there?
Anyone in space and time
Who is the master of the grand design

All is lost
All is done
Without hope we carry on
We're trying to hide the truth, the wisdom
All alone

I know it's all been a matter of
Use and abuse in the name of God
But is it all coincidence?

I know the story just like you do
No one can prove it so no one can really tell
Just true coincidence?
"Run Wild" (feat. Andy Mineo)
by For King And Country
Lyrics:

Are the walls to lock you in or to keep others away
And if the doors were to be opened would you leave or would you stay
The comfort of your misery you cherish dearly, you cherish dearly
And you haven't started dreaming 'cause you're still fast asleep, you're fast asleep

But don't you want to
Run wild, live free
Love strong, you and me

You're a lion full of power who forgot how to roar
You're an eagle full of beauty but you can't seem to soar
Will you return to the garden where you were first made whole
Will you turn to the one who can liberate your soul

Don't you want to
Run wild, live free
Love strong, you and me
Run wild, live free
Love strong

To every soul locked in a cage
In the prison of your past mistakes
No, there's no time left to waste
Yeah, you can make your great escape
We're made to run wild, run wild, run wild
We're made to run wild, run wild, run wild

Run forest, all depends what direction
Some people run from fear, some from their own reflection
Some people run their mouth, some people run their house
Ruling with the heart of a tyrant
Some people run their block, bust shots with a 4-4-5 and
That's the environment, how we were raised
Living like lions but trapped in a cage
Back to imago dei with the blood of a king and the heart of a slave
Don't you wanna run

And if your soul's locked in a cage
You can make your great escape
We're made to run wild, live free
Love strong, you and me
"Shallow" Mashup (Andy Mineo / Crowder)
by MM4H
Lyrics:

Mineo:
Early Christmas morning at the table with my momma
Steam's coming off the coffee, we talking about the Father
These are the conversations I cherish and I hold on to
She asked me, "Is there a girl in your life that you're fond of?"
Well, not yet, feels like I'm looking for the Lochness.
I ain't even really got a prospect
I don't think I found what I want yet.
But let me be blunt, no pothead,
I'm going through a process to stop seeing women as objects
'Cause the meaning of marriage is not sex.
It's so much more, this ain't no beauty contest
When you play that game then somebody's always got next.
If charm is deceiving and beauty's vain, then I bet
The standards that we judge most people with are nonsense.
I put too much emphasis on my preferences,
Dang, I'm feeling shallow just addressing this
'Cause God loves me despite of how much a mess I am
And I'm writing off shawties whose bodies is less impressive like, dang.

I'm caught up in this game again
She's asking if we're more than friends
Why is this happening?
I don't know if she the one,
But I don't wanna lose her love.
I'm caught up in this game again,
She's asking if we're more than friends
Why is this happening?
I don't know if she the one,
But I don't wanna lose her love.

Swoope:
Cooling back in '01, high school mac was so fun,
Making chicks my baby, then on to the next one, Jay-Z.
'01 turned to '04, late night games at your dorm,
Let's take a walk, your girls hating,
We're just flirting, we ain't dating.
'04 turned to '06, and you're so sick,
Asking me, "Is that your chick?"
And I'm like, "Yes, finna put her in a white dress".
And you cry, I loved you, I ain't mean it, but I said it,
Now I'm married with a trail of broken hearts and I regret it, dang.
Should've treated you like you was God's daughter,
'Cause you was, but I got caught up, now I got Karma.
Comma, 2012 and now I got daughters,
And I'd kill the dude that ever do them like I did you.
Long list of names, that's too long to mention,
But I'm the one He cleansed in, I did my dirt
And then some, pain was never intention,
I pray for your forgiveness,
Thank God He saved me from my sin but not the consequences, dang.

Mineo:
There are so many things that I don't understand
Like why am I so lost if I have a captain.
I'm tossed back and forth by deceitful winds,
And if it all falls, look within.
I've been breaking hearts way too long
I did this from the start, now I'm all alone.
So focus on the heart if you want a home
I can't settle for that cardboard box no more.

Crowder:
If you are lost and wandering
Come stumbling in like a prodigal child
See the walls start crumbling
Let the gates of glory open wide

If youre lost and wrecked gain
Come stumbling in like a prodigal child
See the walls start crumbling
Let the gates of glory open wide
Let the gates of glory open wide

And all the boys said
All I really know is I don't know what I want
Caught up in this game again
And all the boys said

"Wake Us Up"
by Aaron Gillespie
Lyrics:

We may feel all alone
We may feel like giving up
But you said "I have power over death"
And you are not dead yet
No, you are not dead yet

Wake us up, Holy One
Hallelujah
We are your daughters and sons

Oh you can meet God
Said the father to us
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
We are Yours!

We may say that we can't change
We may try to run away
But you said "I have power over death"
And you are not dead yet
So we cry out

So we ask you to change us
And awake us
And fill our hearts with grace
with our hands raised

We surrender
For meaning, for nothing
Lord change us by your grace
By your grace, yeah!
"Safety (feat. Stephen Christian)"
by Fireflight
Lyrics:

All alone, alone you float
Can anybody see you
You're a ghost
Do they know the pain you hide
Do they know the pain you hide
Cry for help, reaching out
Can anybody hear you when you shout
Are you hidden from their eyes
Are you hidden from their eyes
I see you

In the light, in the dark
I will be your bleeding heart
Cause when you need me
I'll be your safety
I'll be your safety
Like a fire, running wild
Can't contain what's deep inside
Ready to break free
I'll be your safety
I'll be your safety

House of cards, you fell apart
Feels like you were falling from the start
And now the walls are caving in
Now the walls are caving in
Take a breath, take my hand
It doesn't really matter where we land
I'll be there to help you stand
I'll be there to help you stand
I'll hold you

Your feet are gonna hit the ground
Hope is all you need right now
I'll be there, I'll be there, I'll be there
"I'll Keep On (feat. Jeremiah Carlson)"
by NF
Lyrics:

Coming soon...
"Mercy"
by Ravenhill
Lyrics:

This life is hard and I need you Lord
So won't you take my hand
And I may fall, I may stumble
Oh Lord I'm just a man

And I remember every word that he said
Stand tall you're not alone
I can bear the burdens of the seed I have sown
I built a fire that leaves me cold
And I can bear the burden of the seeds I have sown

I have a heart but it needs love Lord
and you're the only way
We will fight but Lord we know we're strong
And all my enemies just seem to crumble

I got a mansion
Built by the good Lord
And He's come to carry me home
"My Creator"
by Wild Earth
Lyrics:

Made for more than this
Made to swim beneath the surface
You are more than this
As your spirit touches His

What have you made?
What have you made?
What have...

My Creator, my Creator
Has made new life in me!

With every sovereign chance
It was me that you discovered
Oh You illuminate
A brilliance like no other

What have you made?
What have you made?
What have...

My Creator, my Creator
Has made new life in me!

My Creator, my Creator
Your love inspires me

"Hold Your Breath"
by Children 18:3
Lyrics:

This appears to be a crossroads
Swimming both the same way
But I don't like the way those clouds are starting to form
It may be time to step away
This waterfall is close and steep

Hold your breath
We're going under
Hold your breathe
It's lightning, its thunder
Hold your courage now
I can feel the shaking

I don't mean to be a downer
The waterfall rushing by
But I can't swim and I don't even float anymore
With all this rain I'm paralyzed

And it doesn't take long to realize
If you're worried and you can't sleep
If you'd like to take my hand
We can make it to the morning
We can get this ship to land
And when everything around you
Seems to slip into the deep

It may be time
It may be time
"Destruction Of Kings"
by Devin Williams
Lyrics:

You were perfect
Full of wisdom and light
You were oh so beautiful...

Deception was your key
With violence in your eyes
You thought that you cold be the one

Lay broken on the floor
Brought down to your knees
Corrupted to the core
The destruction of kings

You were blameless
From the day that you were born
You were clothed in diamonds and jewels
You were vanquished finally caught up in your lies
You thought that you cold be the Most High

Your ego trip is over
Your arrogance will take you down
"Diamonds In The Dark"
by We Are Leo
Lyrics:

Feels like a million nights that I spent alone
Looking for the Love I'd never know
But then you came into my life
Like fireworks on the 4th of july
And with one touch made my heart ignite
And come alive

Like a million stars lighting up the night
Our hearts will burn so bright
We found hope in the Blackness
Beauty from ashes
We will rise & light up the night and shine like Diamonds
Diamonds in the Dark
We are Diamonds, Diamonds in the Dark

I feel a million hearts that beat as one
I hear a million saints sing a brand new song
Lost inside this beautiful life
Like the stars we'll shine forever bright
Just one touch made our hearts ignite and come alive

We are Diamonds, Diamonds
We Are Diamonds in the Dark

"Stranger"
by Hearts Like Lions
Lyrics:

I never was one who was fond of change
But this dust fills my lungs
As everyone else breathes their share
As they pass me by, pass me by
Don't know if I can keep these hopes up high for long

I'll run away from this place where
I'm not such a stranger in my own skin
To a place I can call home cause
Feels like I'm stuck on the outside just staring in

You always wanted to be around me
But I swore that it would never be this hard
Never be this hard to be myself, so

And I've changed I know this
And only thoughts of you are what have taken me home
I just want you to notice, I just want to be myself
But it's too late

Cause we're never strangers in our skin
We'll shout it out till the very end
We're far away from that place
No turning back for anything
"In Too Deep"
by Seventh Day Slumber
Lyrics:

I guess the wounds run so deep
I cant see how they've infected me
Controlling me
I've wasted away
recalling pain from yesterday
It's killing me

And I'm reaching out

Can't save myself
I'm in too deep
As waves crash down
It's getting harder to breathe
I'm reaching out
God save me now
I'm in too deep

Make these memories fade
Cause I can't live like this for one more day
It's too much to take
My innocence lost
Ripped away no matter what the cost
You took it all

I'm fading away
I'm in too deep
I can't see through the haze as darkness closes in
Somebody wake me up
"Anthem"
by Silversyde
Lyrics:

It's time to rise up from the ashes, tonight
It's time to hold our heads up high and fight

Take one step closer to the edge
I see the fear that's in your eyes
Take one step closer to the edge
Let's spread our wings it's time to fly

It's time to make a little noise, tonight
It's time to stand and raise our voice
And be heard tonight

You have been chosen for this time
You have a light that needs to shine
(Now put your hand up to the sky)
This is our fight this is our life
"Breathe Again" (feat. Matty Mullins)
by Spoken
Lyrics:

Are you broken
A million pieces inside
Your heart wants to surrender
Your mind is asking why?

Are you hopeless
Do you believe you're too far gone?
You fight off the surrender
And so you carry on

I know inside you're falling apart
I know exactly where you are
I see the hope
The light in your eyes

You've come too far to feel this way
So leave the pieces in the grave
Starting over again
So you can breathe again

I was broken
I felt the pain so deep inside
Never wanted to remember
So I kept it out of sight

I am hopeless
I'm nothing more than just a man
The fire burns within me
The fire makes me who I am

The war will come
The shadows will fall
It rages on
It burns in us all

The war will come
The shadows will fade
Look past the embers
And into the flame

"Loud And Clear"
by Colton Dixon
Lyrics:

I've got something to say
But it might not be what you wanna hear
You're seeking someone to blame
So I'll hardly whisper it in your ear
Truth hurts but it heals too
No comfort is comfortable to you

Loud, loud and clear
Can you hear simple truth?
Loud, loud and clear
Can you hear I need you?
I want you not to fear
Is it loud and clear?

Now you're digging a grave
Where you bury all your secrets and lies
Can't mute the sound of your shame
It's the only way you know to survive
Truth hurts but it heals too
No comfort is comfortable to you
"Selfish Eyes"
by Fit For A King
Lyrics:

I slam the door in my own face again
to see if I will ever change the feeling
I separate from my body
simply just lost in my mind

If I walk and find a stone
break it open to find my own gold
making riches out of nothing
there is one thing, the way it's spent
is the challenge or we'll have nothing left.

Fill my stomach with bags of salt
Dissolve like a slug but you know it's your fault
But once my remains are left on the floor
I'll blossom like a flower and become a whole

Do you love, when you're breaking at the seams?
Do you love, when you forget what it means?
Do you love, when you have nothing?
An empty pocket doesn't hurt as much as an empty chest

So break the bread and offer up
the ones you cared for and loved enough
Because you gave up your water for a fifth of gin,
You're like a sailboat with no captain or wind.
"These Hands"
by Hearts Like Lions
Lyrics:

Don't look back, you'll be afraid
Of what I've done, but don't worry I've changed
We're all the same in His eyes

These hands were made for goodness
But I've done so much destruction
These hands were made for love,
These hands were made for you and us

Don't be ashamed of what you've done
Cause we're not perfect but we swear we are
So slow down, slow down
Let's run this race together

These hands are dirty,
Won't you make them clean
I've devoured everything given to me
"Blood Is Thicker"
by Jonah 33
Lyrics:

Sometimes the clear lines get all but washed away
When it all comes down to love.
And the people that you know are worse than all the ones you don't
and normal is make believe.
And you're fighting for something
For just a place where you belong
Even if its wrong
Just breathe in and hold on
And know that you are not alone
When I call you my own

There's not a bridge that I wouldn't burn for you
Not a stone that I leave unturned for you
Not a mile that I wouldn't run for you
Blood is thicker
There's always one thing I will promise you
That my heart will always bleed for you
No matter what they say to you
Blood is thicker

So the next time that your mind
Starts to play its ugly game
That no one chooses you
Let me remind you that hell itself
Could not keep me away
Even if it kills me

There's no way
They could define
This connection that we have
It's by design
"Can't Let Go"
by JSON
Lyrics:

When the rain falls, and the wind blows
I'll keep holding on to you
I can't let go

JSON
Can't see it but I'll believe it
Well let me run that back 'cause believing has got me seeing
See? They tell me life is a balance, put it all on a scale
And try to weigh it up but it's just a couple of nails
Living by the Spirit, but sometimes it just seems like it's a hole inside my ceiling
All the rain that I've been feeling
Rain coming through my ceiling, dealing with what I deal with
I don't know if he hear me, but I do know how I'm feeling

'Cause I, I never get drizzles - only pouring rain
But somebody told me endure, it's just a growing pain"
Well, look all that I have grown through
Is not who's holding on, it's who you are holding on to
Same God that saved me, same God that'll keep me
When life's turbulence is tryin' to defeat me
Though I'm fighting through the struggling and stressin'
Through it all I've learned one life lesson, I can't let go

B.Reith
When the rain falls, and the wind blows
I'll keep holding on to you
When my eyes can't see what's in front of me
I'll keep holding on to you
I can't let go

S.O.
What I fear in my heart groaning
Stare at my past and see all of the stark moments
All of my dark growing, no need to ask
I have seen with the cross, take a seat on my path
Dark nights when I can see that they're easily marred
A harsh plight I demonstrate but could easily mask
Maybe reckon I was getting the deception every second
Hear the messes in my message, how evil we are

This is an evil enchant, no letting go, don't let it
See the Son throw reverend, bring him stronghold wreckage
One hope even when the storms go stressing
Keep your long nose 'cause we got the Lord though, get it?
So 'cause of Jesus, I ain't never letting go
Rather he ain't letting me; I'm the sheep, he's the G.O.A.T.
The greatest of all treasures, you should see, then you know
That the storms brew, but I never cease from his whole life

B.Reith
Oh oh oh oh
I can't let go oh oh oh oh
These storms keep coming and they won't stop raining
My heart's been flooded, now I just can't take it no more
I can't keep going on
But when I'm weak, you're strong
And you keep holding on to me, I can't let go
"Speechless"
by Memphis May Fire
Lyrics:

It's a mystery, too good to be true.
I find my purpose when I look at you.
I bleed transparent.
It's not the way I choose,
but it's only when I'm vulnerable
my true colors shine through.

For a moment, I'm a poet without words,
speechless 'cause you love me at my worst.
I don't deserve this.
I let it surface and all I know is
today I woke up falling in love again.

Starving artist, no match for a queen,
but walls come down and love's limitless
when you find what's meant to be.
Supernatural, it's more than what we see.
A trust that can't be broken seemed impossible to me,
but I've tasted true love & I believe!
"Darkest Part"
by Red
Lyrics:

You dragged the depths of my soul until you found it
A darkened room locked away, I let you in

You looked inside then you turned away
My makeshift savior, He left me right here in my chains

But still I whisper
(I'm calling out)
Still I call you

I never wanted you to see
The darkest part of me
I knew you'd run away
I waited, but you never came
So afraid to be alone
I tried to let you go
Still I find you
Lost inside the darkest part of me

It's my descent, a familiar pain
Of watching all I believed fade away
Of traitors and fools
Of beggars and thieves
Which mask will you choose
What is underneath

Am I the black stain of your perfect life
Am I the darkness that you need to hide

It covers you
It spills over you
"The Best Of Us"
by The Rival
Lyrics:

So you're feelin' like the joker now
No more aces under the table
You try to hide your broken pride
But you know that you're not able

So you fail now get up
'Cause sister it
Happens to the best of us (of us)

So you fail try again
'Cause brother it
Happens to the best of us (of us)

So hold on for now
I know you'll make it somehow

"Overload"
by Beacon Light
Lyrics:

System overload, detonate, love explodes
Wake up call for the comatose
Flow so Crae, overdose
So high from this love that I left the lows
When I'm with the most High and I'm on the road
Everybody needs Love, from coast to coast
So I turn up the bass and my faith is exposed
Clap clap with the hands like that that
See my stocks they gon' rise like Nasdaq
Love so deep the bottom I can't reach
And I'll tell the whole world with the band in my backpack
Everybody wanna be accepted
So Christ chose love and He crossed the checklist
This retrospect provides me perspective
Faith, hope, love it can resurrect ya just breathe

This love is detonating
I think I might explode
It's so intoxicating
System on overload
O on overload
O on overload
O on overload
O on overload

System overload, I ain't never heard of loving your enemies or foes
He said it and he meant it forever we gone go
Living for infinity heaven we call home
So long, I'm gone, when I hear the sound of that horn
Blasting sounds with the trumpets, bump it, loud
Cracking the sky and ozone
This love is so practical, biblical, so factual
With a little bit a living with Him and you gon' get it
Even though they wanna diss em He's the master bro, uh
Looney tunes I'm tazzin yo, spit with a twist and a passion so
I'm serving cats no McEnroe, no Macklemore, no Pastors clothes
Just a SnapBack snapped with a backpack packed
Full of tracks that'll smash like the Hulk on blast
Spider-man I don't need a mask, grab the mic I'm gon' eat it fast
That's a mic-row-wave cause the whole crowd waves
When the sound waves row through the flow of the mic
Walk on the waves cause I'm walking with Christ, like ready, set, get life!

System overload, I'm amazed at Your love cause it saved my soul
I was blasphemous compacted with contracted views I was passionless
But Your love renews and it's adequate, and it activates, I'm an activist
And I'm so brand new yo my tags legit
Cause You changed my life You're immaculate, I'm new!!!
"Lifeline"
by The Lasting Hope
Lyrics:

Still trying to find a reason why
I let things get so off track
The colors so far beyond the lines
that all the shades just turned to black

Between all the ache that filled my heart
You pulling me close when we're drifting apart
You're closing the distance between me
and where I felt alone

And I always hoped
to be something more than what I've known
You were telling me that where I stop
is where You start
You're mending the pieces when I break apart
I fall behind you help me climb
keep pulling me up
cause You are my only lifeline

But I'm still drowning
surrounded
sinking further down to what I've always doubted
I'm ungrateful still You're faithful
I still find Your love so astounding

Between all the ache that once filled my heart
You pulling me close when we're drifting apart
You're closing the distance between me and where I felt alone

Between all the ache that once filled my heart
You pulling me close when we're drifting apart
the distance is closing
"Rebel Static"
by The Protest
Lyrics:

Hear our static on your radio, hear our static on your radio

They told us to stay underground but we've been hiding way too long
They tried to make us quiet down but the line has been drawn
We're rising back up to the streets our words affect the ones we meet
It's coming in so loud and clear sounding stronger than it has for years

Hear our static on the radio, hear our static on the radio

This is not a test, we're taking over, the airwaves are ours
You can try your best, but there is no way you can shut us down
We won't ever rest, until the whole world hears the sound

Can't stop the revolution change is comin' now

So tune into the change you feel we're taking over this is real
Don't try to adjust your radio, the truth resounds in stereo
The chance to live lies in our words and we can't stop until we're heard
So I hope that you're ready now there's no way were slowing down

Hear our static on your radio, hear our static on your radio

We are the ones that can make the change such sweet release
and we won't be giving in, this change you can't defeat
"Fire"
by Scarlet White
Lyrics:

Hangin' on the words
That we breathe, and we bleed
Did you know!?
We're on the edge of disbelief
Have you ever seen
A saint fall to his knees

You Let yourself fall
You better, run
If you want some chance at all
Cause the air, will burn
In the end you'll learn
Set the air on fire

If we have the curse
We live, to sin
Will we know
If there's hope for better days
Won't we see the righteous
we strive, to win
Make ourselves a home in misery
Or live our lives saving those from agony
Have you ever tried
To pick the ashes from the fire

Incinerate the opposition, never mind the air we breathe!
Let it burn into mass desolation, form a new world, new me!
Have you ever dreamed
That we'd set the air on fire
"Transformed"
by Shonlock
Lyrics:

I've been transformed
I've been transformed never never going back
I've been transformed never never going back back
better then before never never going back
I've been transformed never never going back
this means war ready for all that

I've been transformed never going back
better then before time to react
this means war ready to attack
I've been transformed
I've been transformed

funny how everything change
new mainframe
now I got now I got
life in my veins
I've been reborn
far from the norm
my soul transformed
we are connected brand new perspective
synchronized digitized solar reflective

love so obsessive
served and protected
locked and I'm loaded
this weapons perfected

All alone im a one man army
but with you I stand a trillion strong

picture me paper
in the hands of my creator
I'm pressed and fine creased origami
caterpillar cocoon
butterfly by noon
shape shifting of clouds
the beautiful blossoms bloom
respect it color corrected
beyond the science of human genetics
"Guns Blazin"
by Southbound Fearing
Lyrics:

I'm learning what it really means to break down, I'm breaking down
I've been running for so long, I've got to slow down, but I can't slow down, no

They're coming guns blazing tonight, I'm fighting with these broken hands
and broken dreams but I'm still swinging back
They're coming guns blazing tonight, I'm fighting with these broken hands
and broken dreams but I'm still swinging back

Everybody stops and stares when I'm drowning, nobody helps me
But I've got a smile on my face because I know what they refuse to see

Still swinging back, They'll never stop me now, they'll never bring me down
Still swinging back, They'll never stop me now, they'll never bring me down

They're coming guns blazing tonight, I'm fighting with these broken hands
and broken dreams but I'm still swinging back
They're coming guns blazing tonight, I'm fighting with these broken hands
and broken dreams but I'm still swinging back

Still swinging back, They'll never stop me now, they'll never bring me down
Still swinging back, They'll never stop me now, they'll never bring me down

"The Fool"
by Everything In Slow Motion
Lyrics:

Take a look into my eyes and tell me what you see
Nothing hurts anymore, I'm just bitter and empty
Don't try to save me, I'll be just fine
You don't know where I have been
This is more than a cold, cheap conversation
So don't be surprised, if I say "You can keep your words
You can keep your kingdom
Keep your hands to yourself, I'll bet you've never met a sinner like me"
I sit alone, with a demon hanging on my back
Finger resting on the trigger, I was weak and hopeless
Everyone talks, but nobody listens
You don't know where I have been
This is more than a cold, cheap conversation

So don't be surprised, if I say "You can keep your words
You can keep your kingdom. Keep your hands to yourself
I'll bet you've never met a sinner like me
And even though you claim his name, it's not enough to kill the pain
So keep your hands to yourself, I'll bet you've never met a sinner like me"
I'll be just fine. There's no rest in the bed that I have made
A fool I am, I'll hold my pride above the things that keep me suffering
"Can you feel these words? I will never leave you
Lay your burdens to the ground, walk away and I will set you free
And I have always known your name
It kills me son to hear you say
'keep your hands to yourself I'll bet you've never met a sinner like me'
I've always know your name"
"Volcano"
by Rapture Ruckus
Lyrics:

Wake me up in the middle of the night
These dreams keep chasing me
Am I ever gonna exorcise these demons
I guess we'll wait and see
Been walking these same old streets
For a thousand years it seems
I don't wanna ever lose myself
I don't ever wanna be caught refusing help
I don't want to but I'm in a world obsessed with wealth
Convinced it can self-improve itself
I'm never gonna forget my roots
I'm bout to go and blow this roof off
Bout to blow and go and show
This world just who and what I'm made of

Can't hold me down
Can't hold me back
Bout to blow like a volcano
It's not the end, time to begin
Bout to blow like a volcano
In the night sky, gonna burn bright
Gonna erupt like you've never seen it
It's not the end, time to begin
Bout to blow like a volcano

And no matter what you're going through
I know that you're gonna make it through
Cause there's nobody else like you
And nobody do it like you do
You're one of a kind, limited edition, custom designed
You're gonna burn brighter than a fire
Gonna blow ashes across the sky
So let me take a minute, let me make an observation
You're the only one of you there's no replacement
You're the pinnacle of my God's creation
About to blow high and defy gravitation
Chasing stars, hearts racing
You're amazing, if it's any indication
In a world of unlimited information
Beyond imagination, yeah you really got the skies blazing

Can't hold me down
Can't hold me back
Bout to blow like a volcano
It's not the end, time to begin
Bout to blow like a volcano
In the night sky, gonna burn bright
Gonna erupt like you've never seen it
It's not the end, time to begin
Bout to blow like a volcano

All you're gonna see
All you're gonna see
Are the ashes, the ashes
"The Time Is Now"
by Relentless Flood
Lyrics:

Living your life, you're full of shame
So full of regret All this running is getting you nowhere
Wake up oh sleeper, arise from the dead

Get up just see this isn't who you are
You were made for so much more than this
Right now it's time to turn around
Lift up your eyes
The time is now

You're getting nowhere trying on your own
Can't you see this love that I have shown
This isn't who you were meant to be
I don't care what they say, they just get in the way

Get up just see this isn't who you are
You were made for so much more than this
Right now it's time to turn around
Lift up your eyes
The time is now
"Clone"
by Rhett Walker Band
Lyrics:

Ohh you done opened this cage
Done set this prisoner free
Ohh if you listen to me
I'll promise you one thing
It's been a long time coming and now I'm starting
To tear down everything
But just as sure as the rising sun there will be nothing left but me

Ohh you're a robot
You know not, yea you're nothing but a clone
Think nothing for yourself just ride on what we brought
You call yourself an outlaw, but never fight for anything
You sit and wait for them dollar signs selling what we do not need

I can't stand for nothing like you're paid for
I can't go on and hold in everything
Cause we all know there's more that we are made for
I can't go on and not do anything, I ain't your clone

You brought me to your world for all I had to give
To tell everyone what it's like to really live
Just don't start talking about real problems or how it really is
Well I ain't ever been like that and I guess I never will
"Doctor"
by Truslow
Lyrics:

20 milliliters in the middle of the night
You are the enemy a friend of me
The remnants of my mind
I am psychotic to the core
but I want more for it
defines the very purpose
and reason I'm alive

Doctor take my brain away from me
And wake me from the daze
I'm lost inside the sanity of mine
I need your help to go insane

I have found insanity to be
the sanity I need for today
You are lost in sanity you see
And I, I know you're alone
So for now, come follow me home

Walking on the edge with this
Prescription in my head
Your claims are steady
'Til I'm dead
But then I'm gone

It seems to be the answer that I need
But I have felt this virus
spreading all along

Doctor can you heal me now?
I'm breathing but I'm breaking down
My vitals are screaming out
So Doctor can you heal me now?

Caught in the rhythm of
The sound of the Sirens love
Waiting to die she pulls me slowly
Give me the push to run
Lifting the loaded gun

Telling my soul this game is over
Waiting for the day
These thoughts will go away
Knowing forever I'm alive

"Take A Bow"
by Flagship Armada
Lyrics:

You say every word in a perfect rhythm
The way you speak opens every ear
Your soft tone makes the harshness of your cold eyes disappear

Ice runs through your veins to your heart and your hate for love runs deep
I could tell from the start
I could tell from the start

It's not too late you can escape from yourself
I'll show you how
But with lines rehearsed you've made it worse for yourself
Now take a bow

I don't envy your search for identity or the sense of self that comes with
A misconception of reality
My blood boils at the thought of the insanity
The emptiness is there nothing left
To make this madness come to an end?
"Light Of Dawn" (feat. Cash Hollistah)
by Matthew Parker
Lyrics:

I'm a runaway, I hit the road got lost
When I said forget this
No matter what the cost
I'm gonna do my own thing
I'm gonna live my own life
And now I'm far away
And lost in the night

I remember the good times
In the places where the sun shines
I've been here in the dark so long
And all I want to see is the light of dawn

Never thought I would be this far gone
Never thought it would come to this
Never thought it would end up all wrong
Never thought I would run the risk

Of being so lost that I don't know which way is up
Can't tell my left from my right
Fighting to stay alive in a world so cold
I swear that I can see my breath in the night
Death in my sight
wish I could turn back the hands of time
And stay on the path that was laid out
For me to walk on
I need to lock on the Son
Cuz that's my way out
But I've been here in the dark so long
And all I wanna see is the light of dawn

I'm tired of my dark dark life
I can't stay here anymore
I want the son to set my soul afire
Show me the way and I'll walk through the door
I'll walk through the door
To the light of dawn
"Out Of My Head"
by Sumerlin
Lyrics:

As every minute goes by
While the days pass
I feel you're pushing me away
You promised me all this time
That you were in this for life
I feel we were just afraid

But now you're just a ghost in my eyes

Get it- Out of my head, out of my head
Say it- Like I mean it, like I mean it
Now or never
Are you gonna stay forever?
Take it- All that I am, all that I am
Running- After your heart, after your heart
Now or never
Are you gonna stay forever?

Letting go into you
Turned my back on the truth
I feel this was my escape
But I know you have a hold on me
A heart without its certainty, its currency
Can't take much more of complacency

No you're not
Gonna own me
No you won't get
A word out of me
Anymore
(You not gonna get another song out of me)
"The Bird And The Snake"
by Wolves At The Gate
Lyrics:

The morning is coming with a hunger to feed
I'll do what I've got to get the taste that I need
Minute by minute and hour by hour
I'll feed this pit with what I find and all I can scour

Give me a feather and I'll trade you my friend
It's just a single feather dear, it won't be the end
Watch and you'll learn young one, I'm not what you think
I'll give you all you'd ever want to eat and to drink

It's too far to run
It's too hard to fly
There's got to be a better way
It's too far to run
It's too hard to fly
A feather's small to give away

One was the deal before but now I want three
So if you want to get your fix you'll have to agree
Don't you fret now don't you fear you've still got much to give
I'll keep my word if you keep yours; you still need me to live

I'm too slow to run
I'm too weak to fly
I'm tired living day by day
I'm too slow to run
I'm too weak to fly
How much will I have to pay?

Fool don't you see, you haven't a choice
No one will listen, hear out your voice
You're lost and accursed
You're dying of thirst
Stop with your fighting, I'm all you've got
None hear your crying, you're hooked and caught
Was three, now it's six
Come get your fix

I'm too scared to run
I'm too nerved to fly
I once was friend but now the prey
I'm too scared to run
I'm too nerved to fly
Will he save or will he slay?

No! It's the last time that you'll get me
No! It's your last one so now I'll flee
No! All you've brought me is pain and grief
No! You deceptive and lying thief

Thank you my friend and now I'll say my goodbye
As these fangs sink in, you'll fall asleep, and I'll watch as you die

"Alive"
by Bayless
Lyrics:

I'm down here in this cavern, a dark and lonely place
I'm shouting here on bended knee with the echoes screaming in my face
Can you hear me? Lord, can you hear me? Hello?
It's so cold in here I can see my fear
Abducted by my enemy anger, a victim of my own war, I don't love you anymore
In the darkness we all look the same
I'm so alone but hear someone calling my name

I was dying till I heard your name
Lying in a pool of my shame
Poisoned through my veins
You broke through my night, blinded me with your light
My lungs just want to scream it
For the first time, I'm alive

I'm hiding from this fear that dances, I've ruined all my second chances
Oh there's so much more to me
And a hero will come rescue me, I can hear the bell toll for me
A prisoner enduring the lashes, but I hold the key, as if ashes
Oh I did this on my own
So I'll forgive and I'll be reborn
And I'll live for, I want to live for something more

You broke through my night
Scales fell from my eyes
I'm not who I was, no longer calloused
We are the change, we are the light
Love will save us all, don't give up the fight
"Never Ending Story"
by DaysEye
Lyrics:

Search ready I'm going out tonight
Are you ready it's you this time
Touch fire I'm waiting to ignite "taking me closer"
I'm going out I'm going this time I'm breaking from this inside
I trust in what I cannot see and there you'll be!

Searchlight I know you're the one from before my heart alone never felt this desire
Take the time to know you're name you're the one thing I cannot resist
The one thing I cannot resist

Live in prayer you know He'll take you there
Come close were gaining insight
Grown strong waiting for so long "living in this way"
This lifes exhilarating thrill I feel were going under
I trust in what I cannot see and there you'll be

Searchlight I know you're the one from before my heart alone never felt this desire
Take the time to know you're name you're the one thing I cannot resist
The one thing I cannot resist

Ya know its not enough we try and say its you're fault we brake it to the edge
We fall into the lie we tell ourselves its alright have we made our bed?
"My Dear"
by Matty Mullins
Lyrics:

I created you piece by piece.
Made you in my own image perfectly.
I see your faceanddon't regret a thing, so why would you?
There's not a thing about you I don't adore,
so I paid the price that you could never afford.
All I ask is that you trust me nowandwatch my plan unfold.
There is so much in store!

Hold on to me when you think you're sinking.
Run to me when it feels like you can't go on.
My dear, cry to me when life is unfair.
Your voice is the sweetest sound to my ear.
Just look to me when you can't see clearly.
Don't be afraid when you feel my spirit near.
My dear, be stillandknow that I am here.
I've always loved youandI always will.

I've never taken my eyes off of you.
I hold your hand in every trial that you go through.
You've never been alone.
I carry you through all the highs and the lows,
so don't let go now there's so much in store!

Be still my love. When it's too much to bear,
know that I'll always be there.
I hear you when you call my name.
I am the answer you've been searching for.
I'll be your refuge, your shelter from the storm.
I am everything you needandmore.
I loved you before you were born!
"Freedom To Move"
by Spoken For
Lyrics:

We stand in awe before You
Heaven and earth adore You
But our hearts are heavy, Lord
Hear our cry

No other name is greater
Oh Lord, we seek Your favor
Cause our hearts are heavy, Lord
Hear our cry

Cause we can't make it on our own
So in You we place our hope

We wanna see, we wanna see
We want a miracle
We wanna see Your power shake this place
We are believing
We are believing in You
We wanna see, we wanna see
We want a miracle
There's power in Your name
Lord, You have freedom
Lord, You have freedom to move

We stand and lift our hands
For You have a greater plan
Lord, let Your kingdom come
Upon this earth

Oh, Spirit fall
Oh, Sprit move
Oh, Spirit come
And fill this room

We wanna see, we wanna see
We want a miracle
We wanna see Your power shake this place
We are believing
We are believing in You

Coming soon...
"You Are The Light"
by Nine Lashes
Lyrics:

I see the shadows, they're towering
I close my eyes and pass them by
I feel the fear and I'm cowering
Wish I could find a way to rise
I know it's underneath the skin
It's just beneath the surface

I want to run
I want to hide
Am I awake, am I alive?
I don't know the way
The dark leaves me blind
But you are the light
You are the light

I feel the panic dividing me
The worry grows, nowhere to go
And I hold my breath down inside of me
Wish I could find this heart of mine
I know it's underneath the skin
It's just beneath the surface

I see where you are
In the distance
Too far from myself
You're daring to cross
Just to hold me
And you love me, love me
Carry me home in the night
"Bend The Knee"
by Riverside Confession
Lyrics:

Darkness closes in
The war won't pass you by
Swinging swords that were meant to be yours
It's time to pick a side

Whose side are you on?
Whose side are you on?

You can take all the breath right out of me
But you're still going to bend the knee
You can take all the breath right out of me
But you're still going to bend the knee

He's the light in a world of gray
But the world knew Him not
He's the truth He is perfection
Without a stain or spot
He's the groom to the bride we corrupt
And He's come to take her home
He's the King He's the ruler of worlds
And He's come to take His throne

To my King

Here where the birds come to feast on the spoils of war
Here we finally meet on the threshing floor
Here where we weep for the young that were taken by your hand
It is here where you met your end before this world began

"The Final Thoughts Of A Dying Man"
by Fit For A King
Lyrics:

Let's look back, back to the moment
when I followed sin with every step and every breath
I wanted what I couldn't have, it was never enough
Forgotten innocence, just a shadow of who I was meant to become
Is this who I was meant to be?
Why can't I save me?
Why can't I save me?

In pursuit of flesh, I was rotting in my own
A broken soul, searching for home
Alone, alone and forsaken

Take me back to the days when I was young
Take me back to the days when I could feel anything
Take me back to the days when I was young
Take me back to the days, take me back to the days
When I was not afraid to die

Each and every star will fade, but every night brings a new day
I can't see what's in front of me, oh help me find my way
Seeing all the right and wrong, hoping that I will stay strong
The fire in the sky will light my way back home

What are we afraid of? What are we afraid of?
The past is gone, leave it behind
What are we afraid of? What are we afraid of?
Resurrect the man who died inside
Words can't bring back the way that we used to be
We need guidance
We need action

When the road ahead looks bleak and the scars
on our hearts have slowed our breathing
Don't let the darkness define you, step out from the shadows
Don't let the darkness define you, you are not alone
Don't let the darkness define you, you will find your home
"My Allegiance"
by Ilia
Lyrics:

Here's the part where I give my everything
Here's the part where I reach my hands through the air
Become yours then yours forevermore
Run to you so that I can answer your call

How I wish I could rearrange the times
That I could've known you first in my life
And never have had one moment without You pass me by

Oh, no
No looking back
Your eyes have done that for me
They've found me just in time
To run back to the start and straight into your arms

Every single day you never cease
To amaze me I am standing in awe
Take my life and make it marvelous
Carry me to where your glory is

Sometimes, I do get confused
A love this great can be so hard to believe
But I swear that the stars
they shine so bright Only for you

No turning back
Your love has done that for me
It's found me just in time
To run back to the start and straight into your arms

I'm yours
My heart it ever bleeds for you, God
As I await the day to bow in your courts
My allegiance is to you Take all I have and renew
Take all I have and renew
"New Wave"
by Islander
Lyrics:

We must take it or leave it
Because this won't last forever
The invincible summer is crashing in
Why are you so terrified?
Didn't you see it coming?
Why are you so terrified?
Didn't you see it?

Don't feel sorry for me
No

Because I love this new wave
I love this new wave

We are melting away like a dream
So wake up
This world isn't what it seems, it's time to wake up
You look so terrified
Didn't you see it coming?
Yeah, you look so terrified...tell me...
What did you see?

Don't feel sorry for me
No

Because I love this new wave
I love this new wave

It's all ending right in front of my eyes

This could be the last time we speak
Are you okay with that?
I hope you feel the same
Yeah, I hope you feel the same
Because some bad things, they can last forever
We thought that we were living
While the skin rotted off our bones

I love this new wave

It's all ending right in front of my eyes

Blood fills the earth
"Death Knell"
by Sleeping Giant
Lyrics:

I know you can hear it, the sound of church bells ringing
To signal the new days dawning. The kingdom of Heaven is singing out
Wild Pentecostyle!

Summoning to Nations come and see where we stay
A summons to the lost and abandoned. In the midst of decay
Take Hope. The fire is burning come warm yourselves on the flames
I know your destiny Children of God. My father knows all your names
Death Knell

Sound and song has always played an important role in the days of battle
In the days of David for example:
When the enemy would come against God's people
They would give the command to raise up a sound called
the Death Knell Selah That was the sound of the shophars and the reed pipes
declaring Victory over the enemy even before the battle

I Summon The Nations of the World

They remind us that he was still with the people of God in days of battle
"Untraveled Road"
by Thousand Foot Krutch
Lyrics:

Hold on for a second
if words can be weapons
Than what I say can effect it
they're not just words on a record
And I can choose to respect it
or choose to infect it
But once it hits the water
it's too late to be selective

'Cause one voice is enough
to make sleeping giants wake up
To make armies put their hands up
and watch whole nations stand up
It's one belief, one spark, one faith
and one restart
And we can reboot the whole chart
Before it all falls apart

So stand up, shout it out
and put 'em in the air if you like it loud
We only got one shot, so let's make it count
It's a take down, nobody can stop us now
Stand up, shout it out, sing it loud
so the world can't drown us out
Before we depart, let's leave a mark
'Cause light, shines brighter in the dark

When we scream
our lips don't make a sound
We march, with feet on solid ground
We walk, where no one wants to go
On this untraveled road

So hold on for a moment
if we're not scared of opponents
Then with what we have
we can own it
we'll just plant the seed
And keep growin' it
And when that light shines in the mornin'
They'll still be waken' up yawning
But we'll be smilin' like we expected
With sweet victory, one method

Verse of the Day

Rejoice always.
